's not unprecedented. three presidents in the past have done the same. the first belonged to president lincoln. he used it in his swearing-in in 1861. and the second belonged to martin luther king jr. it was his traveling bible and it's fitting because today is martin luther king day. after the swearing-in, the president and the first lady family and friends, congressional leaders all head in to statuary hall for lunch. this is a tradition that dates back to 1889. they'll dine on bison and good old-fashioned apple pie. >> we go to chief correspondent and host of "face the nation" bob schieffer. he's covering his 12th inaugurations. good morning. >> actually it's 13. i came to lbj's with my mom. she got an invitation. the first one i covered, you're absolutely right, was 1968. and hearing robert gibbs talk about he will stress togetherness and trying to you know, heal this partisan divide it made me think of theodore roosevelt in his inaugural speech. he said at one point our relations with other powers are important, he said, but even more important are our relations among o

and bill clinton. lincoln as its successful -- special case and that his second term was so brief. the it is interesting to note that only the president who had a more successful second term than their first was james madison and andrew jackson. the following is an accounting of the presidents elected to a second term, and the reasons for those that have experienced failed or troubled second terms. for failed because of a war that seemed unwinnable, or for lack of preparedness. jefferson, truman, johnson and bush were the four. also, for failed because of economic crisis for failure to act to deter such a crisis. these were jefferson, cleveland, coolidge, franklin roosevelt from the 37 downturn, and george bush. at failed due to their inability to lead congress were jefferson, monroe, grants, wilson, truman, johnson, nixon and bush. to failed due to hubris, franklin roosevelt, and richard nixon are the four who did not effectively communicate their agendas or initiatives were jefferson, monroe, grant in cleveland. obviously, the dominant source of failure for second term president

in today, along with a bible that belongsed to abraham lincoln. tell me about your father's bible. >> that bible is at least 59 years of age, because in it are markings. such as 5-10-54. he was using this as a bible to meditate and pray and prepare himself for leadership in the church. very tattered. we did a little repairing on it, restoration, so it wouldn't fall apart when the president places his hand on it. >> that would be a bad thing to happen in the middle of the inauguration ceremony. i know you are preparing to speak at ebenezer church today, because, of course, what a great coincidence of timing, today we also celebrate your father's legacy as well, on the same day we inaugurate a president. what will you talk about? how do the two things intersect for you? >> first and foremost, the fact that the president is using daddy's bible is heart warming for me. my father was first and foremost a preacher, pastor, it reminds people of that. that is one of the things i will stress today. we must remember the pastor and preacher, and my father was such a healing lead eer, and so

. and then another. and then another. he gave them a quick -- a completely inebriated inaugural address. lincoln was mortified. i unfortunately for johnson, it sets a public image of the andrew johnson. another burly disastrous vice- presidential inaugural address was calvin coolidge as vice- president. he used his address to tell the senate how they should operate. it set him off on a bad -- starting in 1937, that is when the congress started before the president. now president and vice presidents are sworn outside on the steps. the vice president lost his chance to give an inaugural address. there was one exception in that long tradition of the inauguration speech tell that the capital. that was in 1945 when franklin roosevelt was being sworn in for a fourth time. franklin roosevelt, his third inauguration was done at the capitol, but his fourth one was in the middle of world war ii. he felt this was not the inopportune time to have an elaborate inauguration. he decided on his own to move the inauguration to the south front of the capital. the joint committee was not happy with that decision.
the bible and today the bible is front and center again, his bible and president lincoln's bible. so you have 150 years of the emancipation proclamation and 50 years of the dream and they're represented by those two bibles today. >> gretchen: it's so unbelievable it will be the bible for president obama as he he's celebratory swearing in today. and the youth leader was asking the kids if they knew about martin luther king, jr. and of course many raised hands and what i loved was hearing the variety of answers from, he was a pastor, to he was trying to bring peace to the world, et cetera. and i thought it was wonderful that the kids, obviously, know about the lessons that your uncle brought to this nation. how do you think he would tackle the issue of gun control that we're talking about today? >> well, i believe, i remember and my family, all pictures, including dr. king, and jesus christ when he was in the garden and peter took a sword and chopped off the guard's ear trying to protect jesus and jesus put the guard's ear back on and said i'm here to do a job and it's okay, peter. and he
as lincoln. bill, thank you very much. now from weather to sports, skipping over traffic. the only story that could possibly share shelf space with the lance armstrong confessional is the bizarre hoax involving the heisman trophy runner up, mr. manti te'o and his alleged girlfriend who never existed. going to bring back the sports editor for the nation. what's the latest that's gone on late last night and overnight? what do we know about what notre dame is doing? >> well, the latest with manti te'o is silence. with each day of silence comes more questions. it's like you know very well from politics, usually the cover-up is far more damaging than the crime. yesterday there were reports that manti te'o was going to do a press conference. that was scuddled. then an interview on espn. that was scuddled. now he's inside a compound where he's preparing for the nfl draft. you have reporters camped outside as if it's some sort of situation outside an embassy. what's going on with manti te'o? it's getting so much attention. as you referenced, this is the most bizarre story i've ever seen in sport
's greats were abe lincoln and thomas jefferson. for this u.s. president, the first african-american ever elected to the office, the historical legacy has already been written before he officially began his first term. four years ago, president barack obama welcomed the weight of that legacy casting himself as a blank canvas to project our lofty hopes for change and great expectations for the nation. the first item on his agenda, that bright legacy and suggested those hopes were well placed. president obama tried and succeeded where previous democratic presidents tried and failed. he enacted legislation that provided universal health care for all americans. four years after the first inauguration our lofty hopes for what was possible have been dragged back down to earth by the cold hand of reality and a republican dominated house of representatives. this time around, our great expectations may feel like managed expectations. take a look at president obama's second term official portrait. does that look like the face of a man that's lost hope for the future? after losing congressional supp
to others as more inspirational. i look at the highenned security during lincoln's reelection where he referenced god 14 times, trying to bring the country together during a civil war that was dividing our nation. i look at the depression and fdr, trying to tell people that fear is the thing to fear and that to come together and address the economy and go forward together. you look for words of inspiration, you look for a leader who can bring a country together and heal divisions, and that's what i'll look for, too, is what kind of tone, what kind of leader is a second term president obama going to be. >> we'll be watching along with you, jennifer. great to have your perspective. appreciate it very much. >> thank you. >>> looking ahead to the next four years with president obama in the white house, why some experts are already predicting serious second term challenges. >>> also, we have a severe flu outbreak and an update on it. why the cdc believes it's becoming a greater threat to seniors in this country. that's ahead.
